Josh Barnett Training Partners?

Does Josh Barnett train with his instructor only or with multiple training partners? If so what gyms does he train at?

I think he looks pretty prepared in all his fights for someone who doesn't belong to a top MMA camp like American Top Team, Jackson's Camp etc...

I've often wondered this, I've never known of any association to a top MMA gym. Doesn't he train with Erik Paulson? Can't remember where I read that (if at all).

He did at one time train at CSW under Eric alongside guys like Hector Lombard (the got into it hard) and Babalu. I don't believe he still trains there though, I know he has been helping Bobby Lashley prepare for his last couple fights and Eric Prindle worked with him to prepare for his cancelled fight with Thiago Santos.
